Through the Navy, Shane met his beloved wife, Lisa Conry, in Mayport, FL. They married in Wisconsin and settled in Virginia Beach; through this union, Shane gained a son named Chase. Two and a half years ago they had a son named Finnegan.
Shane loved his family and friends, he spoke to his mother, father, and brother daily, along with many friends.

During and beyond high school, he helped his dad paint houses in the summer time.
Shane loved sports- football, basketball, baseball. He especially loved Notre Dame football and Xavier basketball, and was a lifelong baseball card collector.

Shane enjoyed playing board games, dominoes, and cribbage with family and friends. Shane was a lifelong animal lover, dabbling in herpetology through high school. His family was grateful when he switched back to mammals, and his dog Irish was his faithful companion.
